This is one of those fish recipes that people immediately assume must be complicated – with a name like ‘croquettes,’ how simple could it be? We’re here to tell you that it’s incredibly simple. You could easily throw this fish recipe together on a weeknight with ingredients you already have in your pantry and fridge.
2 fillets canned salmon (equal to 12 oz.), flaked
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 tbsp. green onions, diced finely
- 1 shallot, diced finely
- 3 tbsp. Old Bay seasoning
- 1 tsp. dried dill
- Salt and pepper
- 1/2 c. unseasoned bread crumbs
- Vegetable oil sufficient for frying
Over a medium flame, heat oil in a deep skillet. Whisk breadcrumbs and seasonings until mixed. Combine canned salmon, egg, green onion, shallot, and half of the seasoned bread crumbs. Form the resultant mixture into firm patties and dust with additional bread crumbs. Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side, then drain. Serve with tartar sauce, ketchup, or a lemon dill aioli. Yields four servings.
